About

After training with some buddies to run his first marathon, Matt Frazier wondered if he could continue (let alone improve) his training regimen after selecting a meat-free diet. In 2009, he started NoMeatAthlete.com to chronicle his trials in training with this new approach to eating. To Frazier’s great surprise, he began training better than ever and recovering much quicker than before. “Everyone thinks [veganism] is a ‘you can’t get enough protein issue,’ and that is completely false,” Frazier says. “Even if that were true, that is far outweighed by the benefits from eating all of these fresh vegetables and fruits. I think people just don’t make room for those on their plate when they eat a standard diet.” Visit the No Meat Athlete website. Matt Frazier originally appeared on Green is Good on October 28, 2013.
